This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Just what the title says. Disney and Marvel just figured out that pandering to the sjw crowd is unprofitable, ooopsie!

Give it time. Highly likely that this is either a publicity stunt designed to lure the disaffected dollars back in to the coffers, or a temporary move to the same end.

Given the years of destruction wrought on beloved franchises, it should take at least an equal length of time of good behavior to regain the public trust.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we now have an answer to "what is peak Woke?"

It's precisely the point when Disney's bottom line is threatened.

I expect it to be a rather strong course correction; particularly for any part of Marvel Phase 4 that hasn't entered production yet. For example, I'd bet "Thor: Love & Thunder" is getting a rather extensive re-write as we speak (it starts shooting sometime in 2021) because "Lady Thor" is about the wokest of woke in terms of stupid woke Marvel Comics decisions and if Disney is doing a hard reverse I expect that just cease to be a thing in the film (even if the plan is still for Chris Helmsworth to exit the role after the film).

The guy does have some legit inside sources or is a great psychic since he was able to predict what was in The Rise of Palpatine. Doesn't mean we should take his word as the gospel, but it could be true, it could also be just a rumor or even a trap.

"If this leak is true."

I watch a lot of Doomcock and Midnight's Edge. It's all rumor mongering because no sane studio would admit the stuff they talk about. And they admit it in every video.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

We will see. I doubt this is true, but perhaps creating this rumor and getting it swung around might shake some idiot execs into thinking there's really some truth here. Or it's baiting Disney to go double woke to prove its woke allegiance and totally crash the fan base.

I'm hoping Disney goes double extra-woke...and crashes into bankruptcy.

That would be funny as fuck, and from what I've seen of their debt it might not take that much.

I actually enjoyed the "problem" movies but understand very much that I'm a minority there.  What I didn't like was having to pretend that Captain America wasn't being played by a douche-bag communist.  At the very least putting a muzzle on the actors is a good move.

I probably can't forgive them for what they did to Luke Skywalker. I loved that character since I was 4. "A New Hope" was the first movie I ever saw.
Mandalorian is great but I haven't watched 8 or 9 or Solo. Jon Favreau seems to get Star Wars. And yeah my wife pays for Disney Plus out of her own spending money. So the mouse still gets my money seemingly no matter what I do.

Loved Mandalorian Season 1.

I do not dislike what he says, but my hopes are not high.
